Elinor Wonders Why on Foxtel aims to encourage children to follow their curiosity, ask questions when they don’t understand and find answers using science inquiry skills!
The stories in Elinor Wonders Why centre around Elinor and her friends: Ari, a funny and imaginative bat, and Olive, a perceptive and warm elephant. As kids explore Animal Town, they will meet all kinds of interesting, funny, and quirky characters, each with something to teach us about respecting others, the importance of diversity, caring for the environment, and working together to solve problems.
In each episode, Elinor models the foundational practices of science inquiry and engineering design, including her amazing powers of observation and willingness to ask questions and investigate. When she encounters something she doesn’t understand, like why birds have feathers or how tiny ants build massive anthills, she just can’t let it go until she figures it out.
Elinor Wonders Why encourages children and parents to ask their own questions and experience the joy of discovery and understanding together.
Brand new episodes of Elinor Wonders Why will air daily at 4pm until Friday, 15 July 2022 on PBS Kids (Foxtel Channel 719).
